For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
The mind is the leading part of the soul, and the soul is our very being, our self. The body is not the self or our being, but an outward organ. The spirit isn’t thyself or our being either, but an inward organ. See we are a being, a human being a soul, now the soul is a being with two organs. The outward organ of the body and the inward organ of the spirit, our being our self is the soul. This is why the Seripure reveals that the soul is the self in Matthew 16:24-26, and that a human being, person is called a soul. Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall loosest, and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. For what is a man profited if he shall gain the whole world, and los his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul. Now if I call you a body, that is wrong, and if I call you a spirit, that is also wrong, a man is not a body or spirit, but a soul. The soul is your self, your being, and the mind is the leading part of your being representing your self.
The mind represents the self, the body is the flesh, and our spirit contains the Spirit. The spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God. In our spirit is the Triune God as the all inclusive life giving Spirit. I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the fiath of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. See within us there are three parties, Satan as sin is in our flesh. Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. Now God is in our spirit and the self is in our soul represented by our mind. To set the mind on the flesh means to take sides with the flesh, to cooperate with the flesh, to stand with the flesh, to set the mind on the flesh is death. Now to set the mind on the spirit means to take sides with the spirit, to cooperate with the spirit, to stand with the spirit, to set the mind on the is life and peace.
One God and Father of all who is above all, and through all.and in you all.
